Enjoy state and national parks this spring break, but remember: they take money to operate, so consider donating or volunteering to pick up funding slack.

"When you're at Lake Thurmond and see the power plant-- you know that the people operating that plant and keeping our lakes and parks safe are collecting their pay check from our Federal Government. If forced budget cuts were to  affect their program -- they would see a 20 percent cut in hours and pay for 2013 from the department of defense." --Courtney Elledge, WJBF (GA)
